Description

Focused on the preservation of the Sonoran Desert, The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum will turn your idea of a museum inside out. Guests will enjoy a quintessential Sonoran Desert experience which includes: an unforgettable fusion zoo, botanical garden, natural history museum, aquarium and art gallery. Explore 21 acres with two miles of walking trails. Highlights include Stingray Touch, the Hummingbird Aviary, Warden Aquarium and Earth Sciences Center where guests descend into a replica limestone cave. Enjoy live animal presentations that showcase a variety of desert animals and be sure not to miss Raptor Free Flight (seasonal) where native birds of prey fly so close you can feel the brush of feathers!

For native flora and fauna, there’s no better place for spectacular photos. The perfect spot for bird watchers! TripAdvisor’s #1 Tucson attraction. The Museum’s permanent mineral collection has been acknowledged as one of the finest regional collections in the world! Open daily, year-round. Hours/rates vary.
